It's another one of those "there's an elephant in the room shots" - don't mention the wind farm, I was only taking shots of the bollards, honest!

It's Ovenden again, this time with the magical addition of a little torch action on the bollards.

Basically, oyu set the exposure going, then shine your torch breifly on all the bollards you can see and they obligingly reflect back some light to you

It was a very purple shot due to a purple sunset, but I thought that was a bit too "nice" for this kind of thing

very original! Like the subtle tones contrasted against the red and white.

Another great shot Ade, well executed, like the light on the bollards, works well against that sky.
Now is this 'Bollards' or 'Show me the way to go home' unlike you to slip up! LOL.

Nice one.

nice one Pete Smile

I made a point in the forums about the EC being the award that recognises "something different" to the norm; think you proved it here Smile

Very, very clever Ade, very different - the white reflector may be just a touch too much in the FG bollard, but just trying to be critical of an image I have great regard for. Will have to try some of the night stuff again.
